Creative Opportunities in Your Classroom:
In response to growing demand, the fall of 2013 will see an expansion of our nationally recognized Neighborhood Bridges program, designed to bring critical literacy into your classroom. Recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a model of arts integration, Neighborhood Bridges places teaching artists in classrooms with teachers for a 10-week residency collaboration that integrates theatre and storytelling arts into the ELA classroom. Originally developed by The Children’s Theater Company in Minneapolis and the University of Minnesota, the Neighborhood Bridges program develops critical literacy by enhancing students writing and increasing listening, speaking, evaluating and social skills. Teacher testimonials available. Call for more information: 914 251 6232
